Description and a brooch of hers on one of them that are round here to-day." It is hard to keep the younger brethren from avenging such wrongs promptly; but unless the case is clear to the criminal's tribe, punishment, however condign, would lead to a regular vendetta. But I really think the patience of the Mormons with the Indians surpasses anything we read of the Quakers or Mora- vians. You never hear the Mormon younkers boast of prowess at the savages' expense ; their whole tone is different from ours. They talk, for instance, of the duty of avoiding tempting them by traveling alone or unarmed. The Mormon elders will not hear of vengeance on a tribe or band for acts committed by indi- vidual members of it. They think highly of the Indians' "sense of justice," and unless an outrage committed can be fully traced to some previous offense of a white, for which it is a reprisal, they obstinately attribute it to some "bad Indian," whom his chief would be quite as willing to punish as we would one of our white criminals. Bishop Roundhed spoke of the bands of Navajoes of whom we had heard at Beaver. They had stated their case simply to him thus: If he would trade, they would be friends, and buy his horses with blankets; if not, as they wanted horses and must have them, he, Bishop Roundhed, could watch the ranches his best, and they would help themselves when and where they could. Said the bishop, "1 had no horses, but I thought it best for the safety of the Co-op. herd to send up to the ranche for a lot of `broncos.' They were some that we hadn't been able to do anything with." Brigham Young nodded acquiescence, and I asked whether the Navajoes would buy unruly "broncos." 120
